Albert is an ex-con trying to build a better life for himself after some time spent unjustly imprisoned. Bitter and isolated, Albert's finally able to see a bit of light at the end of the tunnel when he finds a job working alongside his niece at Contrapasso's book restoration shop. Sure, some things certainly seem amiss at Contrapasso's, but Albert knows not to ask too many questions, and is happy to look the other way. That is, until it becomes clear that his new boss is a murderer. And when the police suspect Albert of the crimes, he'll have to prove his innocence by any means necessary. MadKap Productions' presentation of Corpus Delicti marks the world premiere of this tale of poetic justice from Chicago playwright David Alex. Learn More
